The second and greatest inventory cooler within the Intel Alder Lake Desktop CPU household has leaked out and comes with an identical design however with extra cooling potential.
Intel’s RH1 Inventory Cooler For 65W Core i9 Alder Lake CPUs Pictured, Has Extra Aluminum Fins Than RM1
Whereas the beforehand pictured RM1 CPU cooler comes with the identical 65W TDP cooling design because the RH1, it is particularly designed for Core i3, Core i5 & Core i7 CPUs in thoughts. The reason being that each one 3 of those SKUs do not have an MTP that exceeds the cooling capabilities of the inventory cooler. The Core i9 CPUs alternatively have a a lot larger MTP (Max Turbo Energy) score than the opposite chips & as such, require higher cooling.
That is the place the RH1 inventory cooler is available in. Primarily based on the earlier report, the brand new LGA 1700 cooler is a part of the Laminar collection & this particular mannequin will probably be codenamed ‘RH1’. There are three variants throughout the Laminar lineup with essentially the most entry-level RS1 cooler bundled with Celeron & Pentium collection, the RM1 cooler for Core i3, Core i5 & Core i7 collection whereas the top-end RH1 cooler will probably be bundled with Core i9 collection. The unlocked Alder Lake chips will not be bundled with these coolers as they require higher thermal options to carry out adequately.
Speaking concerning the design, the RH1 is designed with 65W TDP Core i9 chips in thoughts. It has a spiral heatsink related to the copper base plate and options an industrial 5-blade fan with an Intel emblem to chill the chip. As for the set up mechanism, it is nonetheless the identical with 4 push-and-pull pins that are tremendous simple to put in on any LGA 1700 socketed motherboard. It’s reported that the efficiency of the brand new cooler is certainly higher than the earlier era designs however inferior to AMD’s Wraith lineup.
So nonetheless utterly rubbish in comparison with ryzen inventory coolers

As for RGB, the perimeters appear to be an acrylic design that diffuses the illumination from the spiral RGB LEDs however in contrast to the plastic-looking fins on the perimeters of the RM1, the RH1 options actual and prolonged aluminum fins. You additionally do not have to fret concerning the mounting shenanigans encountered on a number of coolers this era as a consequence of modifications in Z-height and socket dimensions for the Alder Lake platform.
With that stated, the design does look just like AMD’s Wraith Spire field CPU cooler. It additionally provides off a extra premium really feel because of the acrylic design. The brand new cooler is to be bundled with Intel’s Alder Lake Non-Okay lineup which is anticipated to debut alongside the H670, B660, and H610 motherboards at CES 2022.
